today

nativity

our nativity is set up
the nutcracker is playing
turkey bean soup in the slow cooker.
am having afternoon tea
(cinnamon & vanilla).
i am sweeping floors,
scrubbing the stove,
washing towels,
sending mail,
straightening branches,
lighting candles.
miracle on 34th street is scheduled for tonight,
with maybe a fire
& some hot chocolate

how are you celebrating the season today?

people, look east, the time is near | of the crowning of the year.
make your house fair as you are able | trim the hearth and set the table.
people, look east and sing today | love, the guest, is on the way.
